Good conditions in the Belledonne for the end of November. I had to break trail from the Barioz parking to the summit, not that hard in the 20cm of fresh snow. There is no base below 1500 meters. From the summit I skied down the west bowl then lapped around again to reski the bowl. Very good snow with an established base now. Skiing down when I hit the cross country trails I rested on the prepared runs as there is only 15cm of snow on zero base at this level.
